Lee under pressure

World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei is feeling the pressure ahead of his final bid for an elusive Olympic badminton gold medal.

The Malaysian lost the last two Olympic finals to his arch-rival Lin Dan of China. And, at 33, he knows Rio will be his last shot at Games gold.

"I feel more pressure on my shoulders as after the next four years I think I have no chance, so this is my last chance," Lee said in Rio.

The Olympic badminton competition starts on Aug 11.
